He just smelled his finger?!?!?!?!

I’m catching bits of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe on the Discovery Channel and he’s at an alligator farm.

I look up to watch them slide baby alligators at Mike and he is to grab it the way they showed him. Then pass it out to the next guy outside the pen they are in. But before the next guy takes this alligator he stuffs his finger up its butt to determine the sex. He says if he feels a penis it’s a boy and if he doesn’t then it’s a girl.

Mike is having a difficult time and these alligators are falling into the water he is standing in. He finally is getting the hang of this when the Dude on the outside tells Mike to stick his finger up the alligator’s butt and let him know if it’s a boy or a girl. He does it and they pan to the alligator’s eyes before going back to Mike who determines… nothing and you can’t help but feel he just violated this young alligator. The other guy determines the sex and walks off with the animal as you see Mike do the most unbelievable thing… He smelled his finger!
